Please read the rules for this forum before posting.

This forum is for critiquing structure and movement. All dogs/puppies must be stacked with photos taken from the side. Other photos that show them moving, from the front, back, and head shots are also allowed, but a stacked photo must be included.

Please see thread on stacking dogs HERE for help.

Thank you,

I think he's beautiful but to see best structually, we need a side shot but truly from the side. And an official 'stack' position has the front two feet together and under the dog. The rear 2 legs are split though with the nearside leg closest to the camera stretched out and back with the lower part of the leg (just above the paw) perpendicular to the ground. The farside rear leg (other side of the dog from the camera) needs to be under the dog.

This is a stack:

He looks just like my girl and she is a Long Stock Coat.
The easiest ways to tell is the long hair around the ears.
Plush coat is in reference to a Stock coated dog that has extra fluff or undercoat not the length of the top coat.

When the season starts to change, the fur will start to fly. They dont shed too much all the time, just twice a year they 'blow their coat'. With the winter solstice, now the days will start to get longer, and will trigger shedding.
